Those thinking of going on the Calais Rally should check the information on the forum. but just to give you a taster .
Information obtained via the marina website:
As you enter the harbour stick to right (Starboard) side to keep out of the ferries way, there is a large sign on the wall as you enter the harbour directing yachts to to the right. Observe all traffic signals. Calais Port controll are on vhf ch 17. Mooring buoys outside the lock gate are available for waiting, as the swing bridge prevents entry until traffic stops and then the bridge opens for only a few minutes to allow boat access to marina.
Sounding a horn 4 times if you are only boat waiting alerts them you are waiting. The first opening is high tide minus -2 hrs, then -1, then at high tide. Then +1, then +2hrs, last opening +3 hrs after high tide. 6 Openings each high tide.
Check on the internet at http://www.cote-dopale.com/tourisme/ouverture-du-pont-henri-h2non-de-calais for exact times. once inside you can’t leave the marina until bridge opens againat the next high tide times, and the lock gate is open.
